Stay amongst the native trees while looking out over some of the best views in Victoria with Lake Eildon right in front and Mt Buller in the distance. On dusk rare flying foxes zip over your head down the valley below. See the sun set over beautiful lake Eildon and immerse yourself in nature.  

This site is perfect for groups up to 20 with vehicles, motorhomes and tents it has its own private entrance off Sonnberg Drive. You will have the whole site to yourselves and it is very secluded.  I have two sites listed on Hipcamp (1.5km apart) and if your group is 20 people + I would recommend booking "Sonnberg Summit) The site is easily accessible by 2wd vehicles.

10/10 views from this camp site overlooking Lake Eildon. Was awesome having so much firewood available too.

Only problem was a locked gate on arrival which we couldn’t unlock with the code. Owner was quick to respond to our texts and luckily we found an alternative way in.

Flying fox lookout summit was our first Hicamp experience and we couldn't be happier. The view is spectacular, there is amazing Aussie wildlife all about (we didn't see any flying foxes, but bluetongues, cockatoos, rosellas, wedgetails were all about). There is plenty of good wood for burning and we had a really relaxing stay. The *only* thing I would say is that the site is close enough the road that 4x4s hooning past distract from the serenity from time-to-time, but all in all we wouldn't hesitate to com back. Thanks Michael!

This property was Amazing. Set on a hilltop, high above Lake Eildon. You were literally in the clouds at morning time. Loved the convenience of being able to lock the gate, leave our stuff and head out to town or go fishing.
Plenty of fallen trees for firewood, but you will need to bring an Axe and chainsaw. The area was nice and clean, absolutely loved the privacy that this place offered. And the view, omg the view. It was fantastic and we all had a blast. We did not get to meet the host, but honestly, that was one of the nice things about it, being the only people there, was one of the main reasons we chose this place. We went with a stock standard Ute and a 13foot caravan, made it up there no worries. However the hilltop is narrow, so turning around required some guidance. And watch out for the blue rock at the entrance, its fairly small and we did miss it and had to turn around.

This place was great. Michael was a fabulous host; quick to respond to all questions, very helpful directions and suggestions and couldn't have been easier to deal with. Beautiful views, plenty of firewood, lots of trees and easy to get to – great little escape spot.

Sonnberg Summit or Flying Fox, both are amazing. Thank you Michael for your hospitality, flexibility and your availability. Sonnberg might actually be the most beautiful campsite in Victoria. We decided to head away for one night, late notice, and it couldn't have been more perfect.

Sonnberg Summit or Flying Fox, either are amazing! Sonnberg might actually be the best campsite in Victoria. Thanks Michael for your timely replies, your flexibility and your hospitality. Our last minute one night stay was perfect. Thank you.

Great spot with great views of Lake Eildon. Spot is very big but next to the road, so you probably want to set up towards the back. Hardly any traffic on the road so don't worry about thay. Heaps of firewood around. Would definitely recommend!
